The LSAT is like any other test.  If you want to do well on it, you have to study.  But, different exams test different things and the LSAT is completely different from the majority of exams that you may have encountered in your academic career.  The LSAT doesn't test what you know, so there's no way to cram for it; it tests your abilities - reasoning abilities to be specific - and as with any other ability or skill you improve through practice.  The saying is 'practice makes perfect', but more accurately it's 'practice makes permanent, perfect practice makes perfect'.


Perfect practice

In order to improve the sort of skills that the LSAT tests, you need to learn essentially two things: the right approach for each question type, and how to effectively apply those approaches so that you'll be as accurate as possible on test day.

Over the next several blog posts we'll deal with learning to effectively apply the correct approach to each question type.  Future blog posts will deal with the specific question types that you'll come across in the test.  We will also go over:

  • general study habits
  • specific studying strategies for the three sections
  • a schedule that provides you with an optimal approach and is best suited for your situation
